This show is fantastic. But...

Why is New Speedway Boogie split up into THREE SEPARATE TRACKS?! You folks who clean these up and make them available to us are doing a splendid job, but in this facet you have gone overboard. Even though I disagree, it can be argued that since China Cat Sunflower and I Know You Rider were once played independently of each other, they should be split into two tracks.

But three tracks for one song because they jammed between verses? The reason the band listed so many different 'tracks' on the first side of Anthem of The Sun was because they were being paid, in part, by the number of tracks. What is your reason? And is that reason great enough to warrant destroying the continuity of these masterpieces?

I guess I'll just have to learn some new software and put them back together again.

AND...

Friend Of The Devil is played at the proper pace (see American Beauty).

1970 was still a few years before their "let's see how slow we can play" period. In the car last night, Sirius was playing a show from mid-1976. "Let me give it a try," I thought. "1976 isn't all THAT much past their prime." I couldn't even listen to a full minute of Tennessee Jed! It wasn't a particularly fast song to start with.

When I'm in the mood for Lazy Lightning or The Music Never Stopped, I head right to '76 or '77. But a St. Stephen from the same period? It bothers, annoys and hurts me.

As far as downloading and listening to complete shows, I usually draw the line at the summer of '72. Hmmm...that's just when Pigpen stopped performing with the band. Coincidence?
